The Donut of Confusion
14 July – 2 September 2018
Brud’s first institutional show in Germany is also a mid-career retrospective. Influenced by the aesthetics of modular synthesis, video-jockeying, machine vision, streaming video, and memetics, Brud has airdropped the entirety of Season Zero of their show Gewgaw onto Kunstverein München. The audience is invited to binge.
On 13.07.18 @ 1900 You are invited to partake upon this movable feast as Brud takes over the 1. OG, the Kino, and the whole building, including the Flip-Flop Flop-Film Film-Klub in the Schaufenster am Hofgarten. At 2100 the Tamil Noise group Ummo will unleash an ambisonic performance with Gerriet Krishna Sharma & Juan-Pablo Villegas, followed by an afterparty at 2300, with music by Lutto Lento in the Foyer.
Brud are a bunch of heuristics that gained sentience in the Twenty-Teens. An intelligent artifice (i.e., an I.A) raised on contemporary arse, Brud’s locus operandi meanders somewhere between the Stage, the Screen, & the Eye. Misinformed by the history of stage, parlor, & close-up magic, Brud is pre-occupied by the psychology of tricks, gimmicks, apparitions, illusions, scams, & cons. The goal of Brud is to replace Brud with better Brud.
Brud are led by Benevolent Dictator For Life, Aditya Mandayam.
Opening, 13 July, 7pm
Performance, 13 July, 9pm
Afterparty with Lutto Lento, 13 July, 11pm - late
